There are some myths I have heard from so many times about health and fitness and I would like to share here.

If you eat too much protein you will get a good muscles.

You should not eat after 6pm.

Muscles can turn into fat after sometime.

Morning work out can be more efficient than other time.

Women should not lift heavy weights.

Another myth is that you need to train until your muscles are sore. Not good for longevity at all. you're not a pro athlete, so focus on consistency more than intensity.

Well noticed. This myth is very common among coaches.

Some myths perpetuate the internet about what is best for you. Some are good, some are bad, but all of them have been passed down as truth from generation to generation.

I may not be a nutritionist or fitness expert, but I am passionate about health and fitness. Due to my experience training in martial arts for some 20 years, I know the importance of body conditioning.

Myth basted: Cardio for weight loss is more effective than weight training

One myth that has been recently gaining traction is the idea that focusing on cardio for weight loss is more effective than weight training. While there may be some truth to this depending on the situation, there is so much that is wrong with it that even experts can't believe how often they hear about it, especially considering how many times people have proved otherwise.

The myth that cardio is more effective than strength training for weight loss. Many people believe that the calorie burn you get from cardio work out is much more effective than the calorie burn from lifting weights. But, if you're not putting on muscle, you're not burning off fat. Lifting weights can double your calorie burn. Cardio is indeed better than strength training for weight loss. However, when you're losing weight, you'll burn more calories with cardio, but after you're finished losing weight, you can keep your metabolism up by doing strength training.

You’ve probably heard of it once or twice, perhaps even from your gym instructor or a celebrity. The myth that cardio is more effective than strength training for weight loss is false. Despite the hype and numerous programs pushing cardio for weight loss, many popular studies have proven that strength training is far more effective than cardio for weight loss and overall health. Let's look at the research and debunk this myth to find out why working out with weights yields better results.

Another top health and fitness myth is that it is impossible to get in shape without exercise equipment or to buy a gym membership. While these methods may work, they are not necessary for you to get fit. It's false to assume that your ability to exercise is based on the cost of the equipment or membership fees.

Imagine that you were told that for maximum results, you must either lift heavy weights or sprint for 60 minutes. Which sounds more attractive? For decades, fitness experts have advocated that cardio is the key element to a healthy lifestyle. But this isn’t the case. Recent research has proven that endurance training which includes running; biking; and swimming can actually be detrimental to your health over time and could do more harm than good. The myth that cardio is more effective than strength training for weight loss is false. Contrary to popular belief, it has been shown that cardiovascular training can actually cause one to lose muscle; rather than burn fat, which not only slows metabolism but also hinders one’s ability to lose fat.
